Just upgraded to watch 4 classic LTE from Watch 3 LTE, very disappointed.

Battery  : Watch 3 can last for 2~3 days, Watch 4 only 1.5 day

Tiles : Watch 4 doesn't have full month view

Speed : Watch 4 slower than watch 3 a lot

Watch 4 some functions haven't bring from watch 3, such as translator, floor monitor...etc

Please have some bug fix and nice improve next update

I have the watch 4 and don't have any of your issues, you should probably do a reset and start over...

I restart it every night after recharge it

You said you didn't have my issues, have you got the Watch 3? If not, you will never know the difference.

Watch 3 all the response is at once, Watch 4 need to wait 0.5~1second, and message with picture or emoji, it will take more then 5 seconds, it made me always need to turn on my phone and check messages.

I think this is wear OS problem, Tizen is very smooth

I have the Tiles issue, too: the full month view, and the altimeter, both disappeared. I could swear that they were there at first. Now they aren't even available to add.

I noticed (and hated) the disappearance of the full-month tile as well.  Forgot to mention that in my post below.  I'm linking it for the moderator's reference in case someone at Samsung is listening.  Here are  12 Reasons  I returned the GW4 and went back to my GW3.
